No proof or fact-based evidence required? Conspiracy debunker’s argument is just hot air

“Wind turbines cause cancer, don’t you know?” says Robert T. Rock who accuses me of “defending conspiracy theories without offering any proof.” He claims my “climate denying conspiracy theories have ALL been debunked by credible climate scientists” and advises me to “use critical thinking and fact-based evidence and not personal gut feelings that the world is out to get us.”

So, if my “theories” are just “hot air” as Mr. Rock suggests, then why did he waste his opportunity to set the record straight? I find it amusing when conspiracy deniers who are unable to offer any proof or factual evidence, must resort to ridicule and personal attacks when confronted with information that challenges their blind faith in “the system.”

Conspiracy deniers insist that “the science is settled” in regards to climate change, but if that was true why does the topic remain so contentious? If the experts do not agree, then the average person (who is not a scientist) certainly does need critical thinking skills to determine which side of the argument is truthful and which side has ulterior motives. As for my gut feelings, I don’t believe “the world is out to get us” but rather the international corporatocracy is out to get the world. And, conspiracy deniers like Rock are unwitting accomplices in their conspiracy to enslave us all.
